DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The former city clerk for the city of Neola has been charged with three felonies and other charges after a state audit last year found more than $230,000 was misspent over a five-year period.

Neola officials fired Deb Schierbrock in August of 2013 after a city check written to pay for a fire truck bounced.

State auditors found improper overtime payments and numerous checks written to Schierbrock among other problems.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says the Pottawattamie County Attorney filed the charges on Wednesday after state agents investigated.

Schierbrock is charged with ongoing criminal conduct, felonious misconduct and non-felonious misconduct.

She was released on a promise to appear in court on Aug. 19.

Someone appeared to hang up before speaking in calls made to her listed telephone number.
